Grapefruit Records Subscription-Based Record Club

I was just turned on to the very cool subscription based record club, Grapefruit Records and thought I’d turn you on in return.

I found out about Grapefruit because I’m a big fan of Meg Baird and Espers. Knowing this, someone at Grapefruit emailed to let me know that their most recent release was from the Baird Sisters, which is Meg and her sister Laura.

Until You Find Your Green is a beautifully quiet folk album with magical intertwining of wooden instruments and golden voices. One that sounds perfect on vinyl. And even though Grapefruit Records is a subscription-based record club, you can still purchase albums a la carte.

“Grapefruit’s mission is to expose fans to exclusive, challenging new music on vinyl while ensuring that the musicians actually get paid for creating their art.”

Have a listen to a couple tunes from the Baird Sisters album, which were recorded in the sweet Spring air of Laura Baird’s Pennsylvania farmhouse.

Until You Find Your Green ​marks Grapefruit’s second release of the second year of their subscription service.

From their website: “Grapefruit Records is a subscription based record club founded by Simon Joyner and Ben Goldberg to release exclusive and limited, vinyl-only LPs by dedicated artists, both known and yet-to-be-known. The only qualification being that both Ben and Simon love the music.

A Full-Subscription includes four quarterly released full-length LPs and a deluxe, hard-shell printed box to house the four records that make up that year’s roster. Additionally, we offer the individual albums for sale but we encourage people to choose a full subscription because subscriptions spread the wealth and the fans between the better known and lesser known artists.”
